The Critical Importance of Mentors to Landing Your Dream Job

The Critical Importance of Mentors to Landing Your Dream Job

Miguel de Cervantes, the 16th century Spanish novelist, poet and playwright, once said: 鈥淏elieve there are no limits鈥︹漈hat鈥檚 exactly the type of positive mindset one needs to achieve big goals in life which may at first appear...

David, good on you for your persistence. "I learned that life can have an unexpected way of unlocking doors when you have a big goal and set your mind on achieving it, despite the odds and naysayers. Sometimes the 鈥渟tars align鈥 and everything falls into place, as it did for me back then." Stars aligning. Yes, I do believe in those things. Astrology has guided man for thousands of years and thousands more. All you need is ONE person to give you a chance. The rest is history! PS. The covers for your posts here are so colourful! Great job, well done, so proud of you xxx

Many thanks for your kind words and important insights, Preston 馃悵 Vander Ven. Also, many congrats on your entrepreneurial efforts, which serve as a role model for a new generation of young people.
I agree that "getting your foot in the door" is of critical importance. Moreover, as you know, most jobs are not advertised (according to HR experts) which is another reason why networking early and often is a must. Most the jobs I've had in my career materialized from networking, including internships.
Again, I appreciate your taking the time to read this blogging buzz and provide valuable feedback, Preston. I wish you all the best and much continued success with your important work!

I have always loved Matthew 6:25-34, ending with "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." These verses tell us to focus on the NOW. Yet, though are thoughts are in the Now, we must also keep our Eternal Goals in heart. Sometimes it is hard to grasp eternity when our earthly life is less than a speck of time in this world.
Even though we are here living one day at a time, we must not waste this time given to us. Ephesians 5:11-21

"There needs to be a balance of value to you and others". Very true statement 馃悵 Fatima G. Williams. Balance is key in life.

As Hippocratic Oath says "First do no harm..."

And the old hym we used to sing at school " Lord for my sake , wont you help me to take one day at a time!"

Hey Kristen Maslanka - this post floated into view while reading one of Jim Murray's posts. Interestingly, I recently did a presentation to a college chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA). My talk was called "Getting to Who Knows You."

The inspiration for my talk may have been pre-planted into my subconscious mind or something by your post . . . . . thanks!

I certainly knew i just don't think I properly understood the concept of WHAT networking was. That it was more than just meeting people but getting to know them and getting them to know you.

Ken Boddie Agreed. The Power of Now is what we have.
Yet, one of the reasons I love to share one beBee and other platforms is I want to grow that small number of people who want to reach their goals. Besides those few people who reach their goals sometimes end up being the ones who help shape the world.

Like all good "ice breakers" it gets people talking, as well as makes a starting point for what follows.
